  1. 1. Kidney Hyaluronan Regulatory Aspects During Different States of Body Hydration, Nephrogenesis & Diabetes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Louise Rügheimer; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : Physiology; hyaluronan; kidney; dehydration; hydration; diabetes; nephrogenesis; renomedullary interstitial cells; CD44; hyaluronan synthase; hyaluronidase; vasopressin; nitric oxide; prostaglandins; glucocorticoids; angiotensin II; diuresis; lymph vessel; podoplanin; Fysiologi;

    Abstract : The kidney regulates the excretion of water and electrolytes, which maintains homeostasis and enables control of arterial blood pressure. Hyaluronan, a large negatively charged interstitial glucosaminoglycan, is heterogeneously distributed within the kidney, primarily found in the medulla. READ MORE
